How Long After Giving Birth Can I Get Breast Implants?Posted on December 4, 2022
After giving birth, many women would prefer to begin getting back to their pre-pregnancy body as soon as possible. Although breast augmentation is a powerful rejuvenation procedure for mothers following childbirth, there are some considerations and safety precautions that must be taken into account before undergoing surgery. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you create a timeline for your breast augmentation that best suits your needs. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
The Breasts After Pregnancy
The breasts grow and stretch during pregnancy as they accumulate fat and begin to produce milk. This swelling can cause the breasts to eventually look droopy and deflated after childbirth when the breasts stop lactating.
When Can I Get Breast Implants?
It is recommended that mothers wait three to six months after they complete nursing before seeking breast augmentation. If you are planning to lose weight, it is recommended to do so before surgery. This will help guarantee that the breasts have “settled” and are done changing in size and that the results from your breast augmentation are reliable.
Will I Need a Breast Lift?
To achieve the best-looking results from breast augmentation, the nipples should rest as centered as possible over the breast implants. If the breasts have too much excess skin, the nipples may still droop too low with implants and a breast lift may be recommended by your surgeon. A sign that you may benefit from a breast lift is if your nipples naturally rest beneath the crease of the breasts.
